Is there any prohibition against a HSA's being accessed via on line banking? I have reviewed the IRS rules and did not come across anything.

We currently allow online but it is now being questioned.

Define "accessed"

We only allow access to HSA accounts in "view only" mode. We do not allow any type of transactions. I'm not sure there is a "prohibition" against it, but you would want to make sure any type of transactions being made are coded correctly and reported correctly.

Able to make transfers in or out of the account. The specific question posed to me was how do we know if it is current or prior year contribution and if the funds are being used properly.

My mind says we are not required to police whether the money is used for medical, but the contribution question could be something we should know.
